The recent clock change made me aware of just how many items we have in our house that use or display the time, eg clocks, oven, microwave, radio, watches, phones, computers, thermostat....

Usually my phone, or computer, but sometimes I use the clock on the wall.
I mostly use my watch but was slightly surprised to find out that youngsters nowadays don't have watches, as they rely on their phones for the time. It just seemed a bit daft as we went round the house altering so many different clocks, that I rarely actually use them to tell the time!
The oven/microwave clock or my phone.

I use my cellphone and Ipod to tell the time. But I still like a clock on the wall.

I use a wrist watch for the majority, but if you mean which time telling devices we have at home, the list includes: 2 wall clocks, two mantle clocks, two travel clocks, two radio clocks, DVD/VHS player, microwave, oven, and 2 laptops.
It's crazy isn't it, how many things have the time on them!
It is, but I do actually like being able to see the time from allover the house.
My phone.
Usually my phone, but it's a right pain when you're out and about and your phone battery dies!
I just bought a perfect clock for my kitchen.
Thats where I normally am anyway.

my kitchen clock, bedside clock, and the clock in the bathroom when taking a shower to keep track of the time, when showering. and my watch which I wear when I leave the houset
In house, clocks of varying types! My fave type is analog, with Roman Numerals'.
Have got one that's a huge 'fob watch' in appearance!
Have one that also incorporates weather details. I studied Climatology, so very interested in info. it gives!
Combo DVD/VCR in three rooms', in 24 hour clock.
When going out, have watch, which I try to 'match' its' band colour to my outfit colour!

In original home, had all digital clocks set to 24 hour clock, due Army careers'. Kids' were SO used to that, upon going to School, we had to teach them Analog time!
